Our shared vision is for Auckland to be the world's most liveable city. This can only be realised if it is underpinned by an internationally competitive, prosperous economy that all Aucklanders can benefit from and participate in. Auckland's Economic Development Strategy (EDS) sets out the tangible steps we will follow to make this happen over the next ten years.
Why is this important?
Auckland businesses will drive our economic future – through investment, innovation and people. We want to attract innovators, investors, business, visitors and residents. We want our existing businesses to succeed and become more profitable. So a core focus of the strategy is to create favourable conditions where business can grow. Thriving businesses mean more jobs. More jobs mean more money in people’s pockets. And people are at the heart of our economic growth.
Priorities of the Economic Development Strategy
The Economic Development Strategy reflects a partnership with business, central government and a range of other parties, and aims to improve prosperity in Auckland as well as underpinning improvement in social conditions. Some projects have council funding confirmed through the Long-term Plan and are included in the statements of intent of many of the council's own CCOs and Local Board Plans and agreements.
